Roller Coasters are often the main attraction at Theme Parks and Amusement parks. They routinely draw in crowds of thrill-seekers looking for a scary adrenaline-filled experience that they won't soon forget. But what elevates a Coaster from an entertaining joy ride to a jaw-dropping mind-blowing must-try experience? Is it the heart-pounding acceleration of the launch? Is it the stomach-sinking first drop or the crazy inversions? Or is it a combination of these factors blended together devilishly with break-neck speed and unnerving airtime? In this list we feature some of the biggest, baddest, fastest and scariest roller coasters across the world. Some of them are record breakers, others are deceptively frightening owing to their wooden construction - but all of them have what it takes to be on every coaster fanatic's scary hall of fame. Go through the list to experience the incredible POV videos included and let us know by ranking the list which ones you think deserve to be on top (pun intended)!

Superman: Escape from Krypton (originally known as Superman: The Escape) is a steel shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. When it opened in 1997, it was the tallest roller coaster in the world, and its speed of 100 mph (160 km/h) was tied for the fastest with Tower of Terror II, a similar roller coaster which opened two months earlier at Dreamworld in Australia. These two coasters were the first to utilize Linear Synchronous Motor (LSM) technology to propel vehicles to top speed. After refurbishment in 2011, the ride featured new trains which face backward moving at speeds of up to 104 mph (167 km/h), and was painted with a new color scheme. As of 2013, Superman: Escape from Krypton has the third-tallest structure, the fifth-fastest speed and the third-longest drop of any roller coaster in the world.
